How to Meditate When You Have a Million Things on Your Mind

I have really been having problems with anxiety lately
I try to use my morning walk as a meditative time. Early mornings are nice and quiet.
I absolutely love this!
When our multitasking culture starts to get the better of my I remind myself, "when you stir the soup, stir the soup."
It's a bit of a quote from Zen master Suzuki, who said, "When you wash the rice, wash the rice; when you cut the carrots, cut the carrots; when you stir the soup, stir the soup."
Good article- I could never sit still & meditate no matter how many times I tried. I like the added suggestions for meditating on the move.
Very interesting article
Interesting suggestions for meditation practise~
Mindfulness can be helpful as can traditional TM however I find that a walk in nature has the same health results for me & w/ less effort.
Maybe it's cuz I've always been really good at doing nothing & just letting go. My mind & thoughts let me know when to slow down & when to speed up especially if I'm having fun w/ my creative thoughts. If I ever get too overwhelmed aka was still working - I get bitchy, crash & burn, or when possible, just escape by myself to another place. My hubby knows when I say "leave me alone" that I mean it & truly need that time even for just a few minutes or perhaps a much longer power nap. Seem to need fewer of those now that I've finally!!! reached retirement!!!
I meditate using the Bible and memorizing scripture and reading good books from bible teachers.
I keep trying but my mind wonders
